Sedum 'Angelina', Euphorbia characias wulfenii, Centaurea gymnocarpa 'Velvet Centaurea'
Today I worked on my new plant rack with cold frame closures and automatic vent. Eventually a heating pad with thermostat control will extend my seed sowing season to 12/365. Most of the winter tasks are complete in the beds. One last trim of the Ficus pumila and the Grewia occidentalis and my garden is ready for 2014. That said, most of my residential gardens have significant winter tasks pending.
Our purple plum, Prunus cerasifera, is in full spring blossom. No threat of storm to destroy this display.
